Shoes are the number one item you need as a flamenco dancer. Without the right shoe, you can inhibit your dancing ability as well as cause injury. It’s a sound investment if you’re planning on dancing flamenco for a while.
This store in Playa Del Rey (Los Angeles, California) sells Senovilla shoes, which are known for the rosewood heel that makes a nice crisp sound.
They also have a store in New York City if you’re in the area. They have beautiful shoes that are solid and have fantastic leather quality.
These are gorgeous shoes with super fancy designs and great leather. They don’t sell shoes directly from their site. However, if you’re in Southern California, you can visit Naranjita Flamenco Studio in Anaheim who is a West Coast distributer of the shoes. Otherwise, you can buy them from flamencoymas.es.
This is one of the best brands out there with the quality of the leather and heel sound.
I have a few pairs of these shoes that have lasted me over ten years!
